RMLA and NZGBC Wellington : Better Buildings
The RMLA and the New Zealand Green Building Council bring you “Regulatory and non regulatory measures to facilitate quality buildings, homes and places”.
High environmental performance buildings and houses are proven to boost productivity, improve health, reduce energy costs and ease the burden on urban infrastructure. Council incentives increase the quality of buildings in their districts in terms of sustainability and environment footprint. However, inconsistencies in the way regional and local councils provide incentives are limiting Green Building schemes from achieving their full potential.
Sixty seven of New Zealand’s 78 councils are territorial authorities with responsibilities for: infrastructure, including water, sewerage, storm water, environmental safety and health, building control, environmental health matters, controlling the effects of land use (including biodiversity), and impacts on lakes and rivers, much of which would benefit from better buildings.
Join Andrew Eagles, CEO – New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC); Maree Baker-Galloway, President – RMLA, Partner – Anderson Lloyd; and/or Rachel Brooking, Senior Associate – Anderson Lloyd, to explore how the Resource Management Act, Local Government Act and other tools and instruments can be used to enable and incentivise better, “greener” buildings and houses.
